By FCF Staff
Nong-O Gaiyanghadao has gone undefeated since joining ONE Championship, but Saemapetch Fairtex is confident he can change all that at “Edge of Greatness” on Friday.
Fairtex will face ONE’s bantamweight Muay Thai champion at the November 22nd event, which will take place in Sinagpore. At the card’s open workouts, Fairtex and Gaiyanghadao had this to say about their upcoming bout (quotes via press release).
“I feel privileged and honored to be able to share my style of fighting with the world. I have the ability to make adjustments and adapt to my opponent’s style in the ring. I think this will be key against Saemapetch,” said Gaiyanghadao. “This will be my first time fighting here in Singapore, so I am very grateful to be able to perform in front of my friends, my family, and my students. To be able to defend my title here, it will be a special moment in my career. I am looking forward to victory and I can’t wait to give my best for the crowd.”
“Fighting for the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Championship against a legend of the sport in Nong-O Gaiyanghadao is a huge honor for me,” said Fairtex. “I’ve waited my entire career for this moment. In this fight, the world will witness how two Thai warriors do battle, and our unique fighting spirit. Nong-O is a great champion. He is very smart and crafty, and very well-rounded. But I’m the younger man, I’m stronger and hungrier. This is my time and I’m ready to shock the world.”
“Edge of Greatness” will be hosted by the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
